Abstract: 

Discovering a new drug costs more than a billion dollars and takes ten years or
more. So researchers are always looking for new ways to use computers to find
more promising candidate drugs. We look at a promising new system that
applies the tools of algebraic topology to the complex task of finding good
drug candidates, by finding similarities in the 3D shapes of the molecules.
